Ever wanted to grow berries in IndustrialCraft^2? With Berries++, now you can.
Vine - planted with a vine, drops vines
Blackberry - planted with a blackberry, drops blackberries
Raspberry - planted with a raspberry, drops raspberries
Blueberry - planted with a blueberry, drops blueberries
Huckleberry - planted with a huckleberry, drops huckleberries
Each grows in three stages: seed, unripe, and ripe. Crops can be picked when ripe, and revert to unripe. Growth rate is similar to melons/pumpkins. If you're lucky enough you may be able to acquire berries by crossing vines with other crops.
Installation and Configuration:
Important: while Berries++ supplies its own crops, it does not add any new items itself. Another mod is required to add the berry items. You can configure the item IDs and damage values in config/Berries++.cfg as needed, or set to 0 to disable. If you don't use another mod, you'll only be able to grow vines.
Berries++ comes configured with default IDs matching the Trees++ mod. Note Berries++ is not endorsed or affiliated by Trees++; its a separate independently-developed project, and Trees++ is not required to use Berries++ although it does work well with it. If anyone is interested in designing & adding custom items to Berries++ itself, it would be much appreciated :).
1. Install Trees++ or another mod with berries
2. Edit config/Berries++.cfg if needed to enable/disable/match the item IDs
3. Add Berries++ to the "mods" folder on your client and server
